And now for today's Sunday Smooch from Surgeon in a Wedding Dress by Sue MacKay ...

Work has always been a refuge for Dr Sarah Livingstone – no more so than now! As a bride on the run from her hastily cancelled wedding, a new challenge as temporary surgeon in the coastal town of Port Weston should be the perfect cure for heartache…
Except the hunky town doctor, brooding Daniel Riley, wants to get up close and personal! But living with Dan and his adorable four-year-old daughter has workaholic Sarah dreaming dreams that, for her, are impossible fantasies…

[Set up: Sarah has just come in from work and joined Dan in the spa for a wind down and a glass of wine. They've been dancing around each other for days now.]

Movement in the water and Sarah leaned closer to lay her hand on his arm. She didn’t say anything, just touched him.

He took her hand in his and sat there looking at the woman who was changing so much for him. Her determination to carry on even when her foot hurt, her cheerful manner, her sweet smile, the way she was always ready to listen, even her occasional crankiness – all these things and more were helping him get back a life he’d forgotten existed. A life that looked pretty darned good from where he sat. As did his companion. Her cheeks had coloured to a soft pink, and the tiredness staining her face had vanished.

When Sarah turned to place her glass on the table her gaze clashed with his. Without thought he caught her arms and tugged her gently towards him just as she leaned forward. They slid off their seats. Dan instinctively wrapped his arms around her, holding her to his chest, as they bobbed in the bubbling water.

Sarah slid her arms around his waist. Her hands spread out over his back. He could feel each fingertip where they pressed lightly on his skin. The swirling water and her touch were a sensual mix of satin and silk, of soft and firm. He’d arrived in heaven.

His lungs suspended all breathing while his mind assimilated the feel of Sarah’s slick, warm skin under his palms. He moved closer, placed his lips on her throat. Her pulse thumped under his mouth, and he could feel her throbbing response in the fingers that were now pushing through his hair, beating a feverish massage on his scalp. Heard it in the hiss of her indrawn breath.

His tongue traced a line under her chin and up to the corner of her mouth, where he teased her lips gently with his teeth, warming the cooler flesh. He lost all sense of time, place, everything, - except Sarah, and he couldn’t get enough of her. Her mouth, when he tasted it, was sweet with wine. An outpouring of exquisite sensations overtook him.

Then she touched his face, held his head closer, and kissed him back with all the fierceness of a starved woman. He didn’t, couldn’t, stop to question what was behind her actions. Her need fired his own to an even deeper level and he leaned further into her, his bones melting.

Surgeon in a Wedding Dress is out in the UK this month and in Australia/New Zealand January 2012!

  1. This sounds like an intriguing story and I like the cover shown.

  2. Saturday afternoon smooch. I really love that HIS bones melted. Please tell me this is coming out in NA.

  3. Ellen, that's the UK cover which I far prefer to the NZ/Australian ones.

  4. Hi Kaelee, Medicals aren't on the shelves in NA, but they are available on Amazon and Harelquin.

  5. Sigh, what a heavenly kiss, Sue. This pair seem...ahem...very well suited. :-)

    I'm looking forward to reading more and seeing how things play out between them.

  6. Michelle, I hope so!! :) And my DB wonders why I want a spa tub.

  7. What a lovely way to wind down after a day at work! I have a feeling these two will be great together. :)

  8. Great kiss Sue - poor Dan looks like he's going to need cooling down in a cold pool after that :)

  9. Yes, Rachel, warm water, wine and hot company; couldn't be better, could it?

  10. Sue MacKay, that is one hot smooch! You medical author sure can get steamy =) Looking forward to reading the book!

  11. Thanks, Robbie. The thing with medicals is that they range from sweet to very hot, and most are somewhere n between.

  12. I'm left wondering what the temperature of the spa pool was - because you sure got it steaming hot! An intriguing smooch. No prizes for guessing what these two want for Christmas... ;-)

  13. LOVE!! LOVE!! LOVE the smooch!! It's been too long since I read medical romance. Time to do something about that.

  14. scrumptious smooch, Sue - fogging up my computer screen! ;)

    I think that cover's lovely, too!


  15. Clare, scorching I reckon. Kissing saves on power!

  16. Marybelle, glad you liked the smooch and it's great if you're keen to read medicals again.

  17. Hi Sharon, sorry about your screen. :) Are you like me, prefer the northern covers?
